it the european union warns of economic collapse if ireland and the whole don't face up to the economic storm some analysts say dublin is now dipping into the pockets of the very organizations which caused the trouble to the first place. where the nato summit just around the corner we said down with one of its participants to get used to come out of it and the slovenian president says a russian partnership could play a big role in their alliances future he also mentions his country's battle with the financial crisis and whether he regrets joining the e.u. that's that interview is next here in our. the president of slovenia thank you very much for being with us today it's my pleasure the nato summit is coming up in couple of days and you have played an
active role in promoting closer ties between russia and nato how much do you think nato has to change in order to recognize the value of russian partnership when late there has to change and nato is in a search for a mission for a long time after the ending of called toward the legitimate question was if nato is necessary at all but the mission was never completely defined and i think that it cannot be completely defined without a true partnership with russia and we don't have a cold war anymore and we have to figure out what to do new partnership means and i think that in the coming days we should come closer to that if the nation mr president proposed european security treaty do you saying it actually nato leadership into a concept review president medvedev proposed that was was an excellent beginning
and that the agenda at the lot of creative thinking in nato and i think it in directly contributed to the new strategic concept of nato which is much more open and which is which is much more appropriate for a variety of partnership between nato and russia and i'm talking about the assessment of security threats commitment to the chart that of the united nations and also on the possibility to establish partnerships with regard to the side of the fence what do you expect to see. concept announcement anything new or or something that you definitely do. expect to see well i think that we should see a meaningful step towards partnership with this and i think that that's the key in the new strategic concept the platform which should be used to teach a concept offers will be appropriate for reaching agreement on security threats
reaching agreement on the sons and nuclear weapons i think that these are all security challenges which have to be addressed is through us that huge strategic concept talking about more about slovenia and its concept the slogan is dependence on e.u. . specially now that the commitment to its rules is under review by the be our houses the opinion has been affected very badly by the god and financial and economic crisis and that has been the impact on the system all fueled the common cottons to which many evil members but not all be long and now we are in a situation where we have to find a proper financial stability mechanism a mechanism which would be appropriate for management of financial crisis of the future as gross domestic product dropped the most among the sixteen nations sharing the euro plus down employment that has hit through the one hundred thousand mark do
you ever regret joining the currency what are the main pros and cons almost three years after the introduction of euro people have totally accept that you would as regards the country they know that obviously the lack of monetary sovereignty and the inability to devalue the national guard and see is a problem with the market that markets are low the solution is seen better adjustment to eurozone and john that have an improvement in our competitiveness and the necessary changes in our economic. social model which will allow competitiveness to grow windows and social stability to continue. anglo-american push against the lisp and trade budgetary criteria do you see this as a power shift from brussels to berlin there has always been a division of powers so to speak and i think that we should not forget the european
union is not a state european union is a system of sovereign states and in that context germany is the major contributor to the european union and a major economic powerful. and has a legitimate at all an ordinary is leading. us to exercise in the manner in which. solutions would be written first priority of opinion also e.u. has a free regime with russia but the details are still they know on the ground what do you think would be a good step first good step in this direction but i think we need political determination first i think we need to change the political awareness about these things but india. has it they should and i think this has a patient has to be overcome freedom of movement is a human right we should never forget that. part of europe well certainly in
a cultural sense in the political sense yes but i see certainly russia as a part of european space it has been so for centuries supreme asli you've called for a multilateral framework to consolidate energy supplies to the e.u. markets as of today not much has been done in that perspective how do you assure consumers of the security i think we need a much wider multilateral look because energy security depends on the multitude of players. russia is always there russia is a key player supplier a key partner and most of us in europe have extremely good experience with russia and we have been buying the russian system for thirty years has always worked perfectly so there is no reason why we should be in any way i'm comfortable
we need russia in that multilateral framework but we need this is where both consumers and suppliers and that has not been done because we have worked on specific projects more than stream solid and stream the book call and other projects but i think the time is coming to look at the whole picture and work. cooperatively range meant for the future well you've touched upon south stream how would the development of south stream change the energy sector in slovenia what exactly do you expect from we see the multiplying effect of the gas pipeline because the gas pipeline brings not only gas it brings other economies to see it brings gas based electricity plants which we need them others need in the region and we can develop that use and next you can achieve you know this is an opportunity it's really a basic opportunity and let's look at this opportunity in the call put it the framework with more confidence than we were used from before you speak about.
framework in terms of consumer and supplier but you also previously on different occasions told r.t. that one should connect with where the energies and their energy is in russia why is there so persistent about a number well i'm not persistence of india is not the part of the book a project by your part of the e.u. we are part of the e.u. and we would like to see that we don't see this as a mutually exclusive projects that we believe we believe in south stream and we would like to progress rapidly a book or is a separate project but. that excludes the songs three roger and i would like to i'd like to see meeting where both would be discussed as i said we have to improve the arrival of confidence is this questions president slovenia was one of the countries to be consumed both by fascism and communism jurist world war two he actually stressed the importance of the red army and its role in liberating europe from
fascism but as it seems today and you were placed under threat especially during a recession what do you think you should do to tackle the rising fascism. i'm not sure whether the extremist movements that we see today fascist movements in the sense of the first of the twentieth century this a different movements what we now all have reason to burst or dissatisfaction among people in the heat she's turned against immigrants in particular so we see elements of. elements of racism elements all children isn't quite good lately you know bring them being brought to the gathering who are into a sweet gender based movement all the time and we have seen this in all parts of europe that's very worrying we see this from from south to north even in sweden this kind of policies have made progress in the in the past month we need obviously the conservative christian democrat element which has to be strong and which has to
respond to the part of the population which is that the addition of christian values we need we need left liberal socially minded politicos actors as well they have been somewhat in decline in the last years or so but they have to figure out what the priorities of our time are where does one really improve. the condition of working people and and how does one improve so loud that it means. side persecution or political idealism is also part of your country's history and that we can draw apart us russia and poland are trying to reenlist to reinvestigate to cut-n. horrors what advice would you give to those who are actually seeking to recover peace from their past well there's a very difficult question and i can tell you we in slovenia have a also our part of the think with boston we have not been able to overcome it we
have constant discussions about all of this and the constant. reflections on the tragedy and not only tragedy but also crimes that were committed and this healing very slowly in our country in slovenia and swear that we should first of all condemn all crimes it is spectacle who committed them we have to bury old the dead and buried them with dignity we have to commemorate the three hundred of all who died and that you know it's not easy to do because there are many who would say well you know why should we be turning to the postes and i agree we should not be we should not be in slave we should not be prisoner sort of forward bost we have to find a derived measure off at the coach at utah was that mr president thank you very

back to the top of the hour in the mean time and bring you the latest from the world of sports. hello there thanks for watching the sporting this is what we've got over the next few. russia's gold cup it is says it's like a race. the region is russia belgium in the. west indies. it's a triple century in the first again shoreline. but. the twenty eighteen world cup has been given a boost with describing it as low risk for officials visited all the bidding nations in the summer and that's completed their inspection reports russia is going
for the twenty eight team tournament and with england and the joint in spain and portugal they are all considered to be low risk by the sports world governing body while the joint. it's deemed to be mainly due to a lack of government guarantees that bids have been marked on seventeen criteria however thirty first says there are concerns over russia's transport links and england's training facilities and hotel provision while security is an issue in spain and portugal faces executive committee will decide the twenty eighteen and twenty twenty two world cups on december the second. meanwhile the russian football team is getting ready for a friendly against belgium but not in moscow or. it's being staged in the southwest to bring football to their regions although the team training session and their capital constant the top off. russia are getting ready to host a friendly against belgium environ ish and it's not the first time that the
national team has held a match outside moscow but every time russia has hosted a match in one of the provinces it's an event however the squad is still tween in the russian capital and will only leave for what on ish on the day of the match. i think it was the right decision to hold the match will even a huge country and people all over russia would like to see the national team we can start by plane and then play in the divorce talk for example. was a good idea to play where we played tomorrow night. because people don't think as years there as well if you play maybe against belgium. people will go. home now well suited to. the russian players will do their best to entertain the crowd especially the new faces look at his call up three new names to his court room from dinner and look at. their first caps when another dutchman guus hiddink
was in charge and now they're getting a second chance. home town and he will probably receive a warm reception from the fans well told central defender victor wesson from sport black magic is totally new to the squad and design a trio of alexandre and you who are demon was thrown in a good denise of the match due to injury meanwhile alexandre kids is a slide out and he didn't take part in the training session. i'm a little bit tired as it's the end of the season and if beefed up a small injury so i'm not training today but hopefully i'll be fully recovered by tomorrow. but look at who's nicknamed the little general who was only the coach of belgium for a short time and resigned can slightly criminal circumstances however the sixty three year old doesn't seem to be faced by the prospect of facing his former side. is just. the country. we play against them i know to play with
the players. for for me it is nice to see some people back. there was little to play for in the friendly match advocate's man atop a fewer twenty twelve qualifying group with nine points up to four games and we. get to finish the season on a high at what i want to show and thinking about out of party. now elsewhere england are also affected by injuries as they prepare to host their friendly with france at wembley tonight i keep players including john terry wayne really germane defoe and ashley cole are all absent though it does offer a chance for some new faces including sundin midfielder jordan henderson and striker jay bothroyd place for championship side cardiff he started his career with arsenal fell out with the management there and despite having had several clubs in a short space of time it seems to have found his form scoring fifteen goals for his club this season. more or less for the big.
so. what. do you know it really spoke to me a conscious effort. on and off the show. and it worked. for france. says the game is just one step in a long rebuilding process after their failure at the world cup the former sweep it took over after the tournament in south africa and has recalled barcelona defender erik abbey del though patrice evra nicholas remain overlooked sang a clean sheet and samir nasri and former new you are in the twenty two man squad frank rebury is still injured and even though admits the squad is not as strong as those in the past the village franz have enough talented players to start winning again. over the board. we have had some great size before but what we have got now
is a good group of talented players who are beginning to grow some of them are playing in foreign leagues some of them are playing here in england and what i am looking to develop is a top center in our hearts and these players grow in progress to learn another dimension to their plate number style and another facet to their play while playing in different leagues as well as playing in the french league. meanwhile announced today world cup runners up the netherlands are preparing to host. manager is not springing any surprises and has opted for a conservative squad although aslam by munich have already registered their concern over the call of the striker robin van persie amar van bommel who are coming back from injury in the european qualifiers the netherlands stand up agree amid fear that john brings van marwijk will bring in your names when he feels the time is right. if. you saw the welcome in our team but it's off to the manager but our team is still young. we are still
hungry to win the games especially after the. especially after the summer. if you want to win all the games former russian manager games hiddink has made plenty of changes to his side he's trying to reverse a miserable run since taking charge of a loss to germany and as a vision in the euro qualifies under strop several first team regulars for the holland game which dutchman says will be a good test for his new look tain more or less for us more of a test match because we have more new players compared to the dutch team which is already. at least two years or more. almost the same composition playing which give us a huge advantage but that's why i like to see my players to morrow how the oppose that. machine which is playing very well recently. other
